Nothing can be known without Number. It underlies all experience and appearance, both quantitatively as counting, and qualitatively as relationship, function, and metaphysical principle. As such, it corresponds to a precise intellectual capacity, called “the intelligence of the heart,” which Pythagorean teaching strives to cultivate in its studies of geometry and harmony. This lecture introduces these principles. Author William Irwin Thompson is founder of the Lindisfarne Association.
The Lindisfarne Tapes are selected recordings of presentations and conversations at the Lindisfarne Fellows’ meetings. In March of 2013 William Thompson granted permission to the Schumacher Center for a New Economics to transfer the talks from the old reel-to-reel tapes to digital format so that they could be posted online and shared freely. Reposting should include acknowledgment of williamirwinthompson.org.
